    I was going to get her a black and pink mesquito but then I saw way to many negative reviews. What would you guys suggest? I'll just dip it pink if it doesn't come that way. :D

    I don't like Bersa, Taurus, Hi-Point, and Kahr. Don't care if it's poly or metal. Don't even try and talk me into a .380 :rolleyes:, she likes the .22 best.

    take her with you. let her hold a lot and pick her own. then you can buy it for her. there are so many great choices in .22's that we cant really say oh go buy this she'll like it. she has to pick out the size, color shape, and action. so take her along and get her hands on as many different models as you can. my wife liked the ruger SR22. i do too but i think i would rather have a browning or ruger mk 3. soo go have some shopping time

    If carry/concealment isn't an issue, you can't go wrong with a Ruger MK I, II, or III; if a revolver is acceptable, the Ruger Single Six.

    Look at the Smith and Wesson 22 Kit gun. A very nice little J frame revolver. The Ruger SR22 is another option.

    Or, if you are willing to spend a little more, Walther has just reintroduced the PPK/S in .22 LR.

    Let me see if I can help narrow it down a bit. Let's go, semi-auto and small to medium size (she has little hands).

    Walther p22's shoot like sex...
    interchangeable back strap, mag release is badass.

    Had the pleasure of shooting a suppressed p22 a month ago and felt like James Bond. I want one...

    I have an older one, and it shoots great.

    I bought the walther p22 a couple months ago and I love it! The only problem I have encountered is the 22lr bullets that aren't coated don't feed. But like I said I love it!

    If it's for target shooting then something like a Ruger MK 1-2-3-22/45
    Browning Buckmark is a good one too.
    Sometihng toi carry around maybe the Walther PPK/s or P22

    Ruger SR22 is a good choice! .22 LR and fun to plink with and if you get those CCI rounds, and a good grouping, you can use it for defense. Beat a baseball bat. Good luck fining ammo though!

    My wife is looking at the Ruger 22/45, she seems to like that one the best.

    Walther P22, my wife loves hers. It's reliable and inexpensive.

    I love my mosquito. Did have some issues and sent it back to sig and now maybe one failure every 200 rounds of CCI mini mags. Also look at the 1911s in .22. Sig, GSG and others make them

    This sounds like a fun gun and something to take to the range. If that's the case, get her a nice sa cowboy action gun in 22lr. They are fun to shoot and tend to be very accurate. The ruger bearcat is a beautiful little revolver that's a good shooter. I'm not sure what you're wanting. Good luck in your search, you only have about 10 million nice guns to choose from.
